Jesús Aguilar has been traded from Milwaukee to Tampa

2018 All-Star Jesus Aguilar was traded to the Tampa Bay Rays for pitcher Jake Faria Wednesday morning, according to Jeff Passan, ESPN's Major League Baseball insider. The Brewers hope Faria can help what has been a disappointing pitching staff, while the Rays are banking on Aguilar rediscovering his power stroke from a season ago. Originally struggling to find regular at-bats, Aguilar emerged as a force in the 2018 season and was selected as an All-Star for the first time. He slashed only.225/.327/.385 with eight home runs and 32 RBIs in the first half of the year. His batting average and OPS (.694) were both his worst in three seasons in Milwaukee, but his numbers were up to.298 and.920 in July.

The 29-year-old is arbitration-eligible for three more seasons.

Faria opened 2019 in the minors and has made just seven big-league appearances for the Rays this season, all out of the bullpen.

He posted a 5.40 ERA and 5.08 FIP over 65 innings across 12 starts and five bullpen appearances a year ago.
